Glen Echo Park 

1987 Winter Classes and Events 

National Park Service 




Glen Echo Park 



Glen Echo began in 1891 as a National Chautauqua Assembly, a center "To promote liberal 
and practical education, especially among the masses of the people; to teach the sciences, 
arts, languages, and literature; to prepare its patrons for their several pursuits and 
professions in life; and to fit them for the duties which devolve upon them as members of 
society." By 1900 Glen Echo had become an Amusement Park which served the Washington 
area until 1968. Since 1971, Glen Echo has again been developing the concept of arts and 
cultural education for everyone under National Park Service direction and with a high level 
of public and community involvement. It serves both the surrounding communities and 
visitors from across the country. Its four sessions of classes are taught year-round by well- 
known artists and professionals, some of whom are members of the residency programs in 
the park. There are concerts, demonstrations, workshops and festivals on Sundays during 
the warm months as a part of the Chautauqua Summer Season, one of the largest cultural 
programs in the Washington, D.C. area. In addition, the antique hand-carved and hand- 
painted Dentzel carousel, saved by community effort, operates on summer weekends, and 
the Gallery offers changing monthly exhibitions of Glen Echo's artists. 

****************************************************** 

Some of Washington's best artists have gotten their start at Glen Echo Park. In sculpture, 
photography, book arts — in almost every field, Glen Echo has provided opportunities and support 
in an atmosphere where diverse artists work, interact, and experiment. I came to the park as a 
summer resident in 1978. In addition to studio space, this unique program provided me valuable 
experiences — curating exhibitions, writing press releases, teaching, and dealing directly with the 
public. It was a wonderful opportunity for someone just out of school. 

Now, 8 years later (3 as a resident artist), it's a little sad to look back. The Foundry is gone. The 
Writer's Center is gone. Our public relations staff, Auto Awareness, half the gallery space— all are 
gone due to building deterioration and lack of funds. Yet this recent crisis, the threat of losing 
what remains, has caused me to really appreciate what we have. And we have a great deal. There is 
a strong resident artist program. Glen Echo Dance Theater with the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange, 
Adventure Theatre and its summer theatre camp, classes in the arts, the Washington Folk Festival, 
opportunities like the summer resident program, and the Labor Day Art Show. Most importantly, 
we have the artist community with its atmosphere of interaction, cooperation, and growth. 

The dramatic establishment of the Glen Echo Park Foundation to raise the money needed to 
preserve the park has been like a miracle. This great show of community support is a strong 
validation of the park's goals. Perhaps crisis is opportunity. With the Foundation's help, maybe 
Glen Echo will now, at last, have the chance to reach its full potential. Let's hope that 8 years from 
now, when we look back, it will be to see 1986 as an important turning point and not the end of 
Glen Echo's life as a cultural center.

Residents and Instructors 



320-5331 



Instructors in the Creative Education Program are not salaried employees of the National Park Service. 
They are, rather, independent "Cooperative Agents," and the tuition fees received by the park service are 
paid directly to them minus a $7 registration fee per person. Tuition fees may be up to $4 per hour per 
student. In addition to teaching classes, they also participate in festivals and may get involved in various 
other Glen Echo programs. 

Creative Education Program teachers fall into two categories: Instructors and Residents. Instructors 
teach in multi-use classroom areas and are accepted for one year of classes at a time. Residents operate 
full-time studio spaces at the park. Proposals for a residency space are accepted when a vacancy is adver- 
tized. One proposal is chosen from the several that are received. Residency is awarded for a two- to three- 
year period. Both residents and non-residents pay utilities fees. 



A History 



In the 1890's Glen Echo Park was the site of a National Chautauqua Assembly. Here on the banks of the 
Potomac, families camped for the summer and attended poetry readings, lectures, concerts, as well as 
parties, sports, and much more. In 1891 the Chautauqua Movement stated its goal in this way: 

"To promote liberal and practical education, especially among the masses of the 
people; to teach the sciences, arts, languages, and literature; to prepare its patrons 
for their several pursuits and professions in life, and to fit them for the duties which 
devolve upon them as members of society." 

Today the Creative Education Program is loosely based on the Chautauqua Movement and shares the 
following goals of the movement: 

1 . Support the development of human growth and potential 

2. Place high-quality cultural programming in a relaxed, recreational, and family 
setting 

3. Create a resource center of practical and liberal knowledge and skills made ac- 
cessible to the general public

firing techniques. Instruction is given in an 
environment that is both relaxed and informal 
and creatively serious. The teaching philosophy 
at Glen Echo Pottery is to enable the students to 
express themselves as fully as possible in their 
own way and at their own pace. 

All sessions cover beginning through advanced 
wheel techniques: wedging, centering, & throw- 
ing on the potter's wheel. 

A firing fee is charged according to the formula 
worked out. Kiln rentals are made available to

GLEN ECHO DANCE THEATRE 

Glen Echo Dance Theater is a non-profit cor- 
poration whose purpose is to provide a dance 
center offering the Washington area an excellent 
school of dance with a resident professional 
dance company and to serve as a major perform- 
ing center for dance companies of the greater 
metropolitan area. Established in the summer of 
1977 by Jan Tievsky, Artistic Director, Glen 
Echo Dance Theater became the resident dance 
company of Glen Echo Park, sponsored by the 
National Park Service. In the fall of 1977, the 
school of dance was started. The curriculum 
includes Modern, Jazz, Ballet, Improvisation 
and Dance as a Contact Sport. Glen Echo Dance 
Theater offers internship programs for academic 
credit to high school and college students. 

The dance company has performed widely 
throughout the metropolitan area. Performances 
have included those at George Washington 
University, St. Mary's College, Summer in the 
Parks, Wolf Trap, the MDA'S Choreographers 
Showcase and the Roundhouse Theater. They 
have also been performing in the school systems 
of Fairfax, Montgomery, and Prince George's 
Counties. The Glen Echo Dance Theater has 
hosted guest choreographers from nationally 
known companies who have taught classes and 
choreographed new works specifically for the 
Company. 




THE DANCE EXCHANGE 

The Dance Exchange is a unique and innovative 
organization. Its integrated approach to artistic 
development and community involvement pro- 
vides a powerful model for the expansion of the 
arts in community life. In the fall of 1984 the 
Dance Exchange and its performing companies 
became our guest company-in-residence. To 
contact the Dance Exchange, call 229-8036. 

The Dance Exchange Performance Company is 
composed of professional dancers from the 
Washington area. Combining dance with real- 
istic imagery, works are defined by the spoken 
word, drawing upon literature, personal exper- 
ience, philosophy, and political/social com- 
mentary. The company performs throughout the 
Washington area, most recently at Dance Place 
and the Pavilion (under the auspices of the 
Washington Performing Arts Society). In ad- 
dition, the Company tours the country, presen- 
ting concerts such as its recent performance at 
Dance Theatre Workshop in New York City. 

The Dancers of the Third Age is a unique per- 
formance company composed exclusively of 
older people. The company grew out of seniors' 
dance classes and workshops at local institutions 
and currently performs its own choreographed 
works throughout the area and on tour. The 
Dancers of the Third Age has performed for The 
Smithsonian Institution, Wolf Trap, the Na- 
tional Council on Aging, and scores of D.C., 
Maryland, and Virginia schools through the 
Washington Performing Arts Society "Concerts 
in Schools" program.

Glen Echo Park Foundation 



You Are Invited to Join 
THE GLEN ECHO PARK FOUNDATION 

A group of citizens concerned about the future of Glen Echo Park is forming a foundation to help support the Park. As presently 
envisioned, the goals of the Glen Echo Park Foundation are as follows: 

— To stabilize and preserve existing Park structures 

— To preserve, protect, and enhance the natural Park setting on the Potomac palisades 

— To continue existing cultural and educational programs 

— To help develop additional educational and cultural programs 

Why is such a foundation needed? When the National Park Service was given administrative responsibility for Glen Echo Park in 
1970, it inherited a collection of badly deteriorated structures and facilities. Since that time, NPS has spent several million dollars to 
improve the site and its buildings, in addition to operating expenses of approximately $215,000 per year. Over the years, numerous 
cooperators have assisted NPS in providing educational and cultural programs for public enjoyment and enlightenment. Along with 
other government agencies, NPS is now faced with more stringent budget requirements, and Glen Echo Park is not immune to these 
nation-wide budget reductions. As an alternative to such options as leasing to private interests or boarding up the deteriorating 
buildings, NPS had indicated willingness to enter into an agreement with the Glen Echo Park Foundation as a cooperator. The 
Foundation intends initially to concentrate on raising funds to replace the outdated electrical and water systems and to stabilize the 
existing Park structures. 

How can you help? By joining the Glen Echo Park Foundation. Your membership dues will help to support the work of the Foun- 
dation, and will contribute to the enhancement of the Park and its programs. You will have a voice in the Foundation's activities, 
and you will be entitled to member benefits such as a newsletter and invitations to membership events. Volunteering your time, 
effort, and expertise will help advance the work of the Foundation and keep our operating expenses at the lowest possible level. You 
are invited to become involved with the hundreds of Glen Echo Park friends who have already contributed and volunteered.
